〔Translation〕

Since the development of Ulleungdo, it has long been recognized among the locals that Dokdo is a dependent island of Ulleungdo.

Dokdo can clearly be seen from this Ulleungdo on a clear day. Also, fishing boats drifting in the East Sea were often washed ashore in Dokdo since long. Hence, the residents of Ulleungdo have a great attachment to Dokdo.
